-—The Kirk Reeves mural—-
In July, I painted a 10 by 38 foot mural of Kirk Reeves, the street performer who passed away in 2012. The piece is on NE Grand at Lloyd in Portland, Oregon, and it was featured on KOIN and KGW as well as in this video, which filmmaker Ifanyi Bell created for Oregon Public Broadcasting.

-—Paintings from my past—-
When I began my career in 2003, I had no idea how much my painting style would evolve over time, and, in the last decade, it’s been fascinating to mark where the changes come from. The portrait pictured here is from 2006, but looking at works from 2003, 2004, and 2005 is equally as interesting.

-—Art talk—-
In 2013, I spoke at the American Association for the Advancement of Science in DC about what artists and scientists have in common. More recently, I spoke at TEDxGeneva about why imitation is good for artists and for creativity.
